If these drives are USB drives, you can use the USB backup plugin. It is made for this kind of usage.
Once it is configured, this is the workflow:
- manually connect the drive using USB
- the drive is automatically mounted
- the rsync jobs are executed
- the drive is unmounted
- you can get an email once it is completed
- disconnect the drive
Sounds promising I will try this method today and will go back to you with the results. Thanks
macom is there any log for these jobs? In rsync logs I believe? Looks like it is working correctly. So It should start automatically just after plugging in the drive(s)?
